"If you can see a thing whole," he said, "it seems that it's always beautiful. Planets, lives. . . . But close up, a world's all dirt and rocks. And day to day, life's a hard job, you get tired, you loose the pattern. You need distance, interval. The way to see how beautiful earth is, is to see it from the moon. The way to see how beautiful life is, is from the vantage point of death." Ursula K. Le Guin 💙

One of the hardest lessons I’ve had to learn about having a disability is that healing is not linear. Whether it’s your best day or your worst day there is an ebb and flow to healing that doesn’t follow our timeline or fit neatly inside our plans.
Atlas has taught me so much about the tides of healing as we work and train together. Like healing, learning is not linear. Some days a task that we’ve worked months to master suddenly clicks and we move ahead in leaps and bounds, and some days a cue that we had mastered needs to be broken back down into easy steps so Atlas can remember how and why we do it.
Healing is not a journey we do alone, we need experts and doctors for testing and treatment, we need tools and physical aids to help us reach our goals, and we need support and community to help us find hope.
So far I’ve been officially diagnosed with over 10 different life altering conditions. Every year a few more get added to the list and every aspect of my life and care has to change to accommodate them. Sometimes it feels like I’m taking one step forward only to go 10 steps back, but when I look at all of the hard work it’s taken to get to this point I know that this is just a twilight in my healing journey. I don’t know if I’m facing a sun rise or a sun set, but either way I’ll find my way back into the light.
